The holiday season is upon us, and you might be planning on having friends and family over for holiday celebrations. If that’s the case, it’s important to sanitize your countertops thoroughly, both before and after you have people over. So, here are some cleaning tips for your countertops:

  • When you are preparing food, it’s important that you wipe down your countertops both before and after you cook. If you spill anything, be sure to clean it up immediately if you can. 
  • For general cleaning, use a microfiber cloth and warm water mixed with dishwashing soap. Avoid rough cleaning materials that can scratch your countertop, or harsh chemicals that could damage it. 
  • To disinfect your countertops, spray them 70% isopropyl alcohol and then wipe them dry with a microfiber cloth. You can also make a cleaning solution of hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. These will help to remove the germs without causing damage to your countertops like some cleaning solutions can.
  • If you use a sponge to clean your countertops, be sure to wash it immediately after use. Also, replace your sponges regularly as they can become breeding grounds for bacteria after too many uses.
